The massage has a fundamental role in the nutrition of the muscles, very important for the recovery of the neuromuscular work. This process is due to the improvement of the metabolism in the muscles and to the acetylcholine, released.
Muscle vessels are dilated by the release of histamine, increasing the temperature of the tissues undergoing massage which the speed of contraction of muscles. \ This results in reduced fatigue, and more effective muscle coordination and activity by improving neuromuscular maintenance capacity.
The massage manages to relax the stressed muscles, which in turn stop exerting pressure on the lymphatic and blood vessels, aiding the expulsion of histamine and adrenaline.
The massage has a calming effect, because by eliminating the wastes of the cells causes the venous and capillary systems to open, simultaneously entering great amount of oxygen and nutrients, that will greatly improve the state of the muscles. Massage helps to achieve greater muscle strength, decreases muscle pain and also the intensity of pain after exercise.
